Canon EW-60C Lens Hood for EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6, II, III, IV, V, 18-55mm & 28-90mm Lenses

You Pay: $17.95

Lens hoods are primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

Dedicated lens hoods are designed to match the specific focal length of the lens it was designed for.

What do you want from a Hood? Stop pesky lens flair! EW-60C Does this
What don't you want from a hood? Show up on your image!! EW-60C is perfect for this lens.

Posted are three pictures set at 18mm zoom:
1. Generic 58 mm screw mount at max wide-angle setting showing interference.
2. Same scene with Polarizing filter and EW-60C attached
The feature I like the most is the bayonet stile attachment to the 18-55 Zoom. Like all precision devices precise alignment is required by the user to do the attachment successfully. Practice and patients are required. I think it is easier that a screw mount which are prone to cross threading. I keep the hood on my lens in the reverse mode. It protects the lens threads.

It is not a tulip hood but I have not found one that works as well as this one.

I spent extra to get the Canon branded lens hood however this lens hood is very difficult to fit onto my 18 - 55mm IS lens. I can't imagine the much cheaper generic brand lens hoods would be any worse. Save your money, Canon made no effort in making this lens hood fit the lenses propertly. Previously had Nikon products, their lens hoods fit their lenses like a glove.. I regret switching to Canon.
If you have 15 minutes to fumble around with this the lens hood everytime you need to put it on your lens or take it off, then go ahead and buy this.. however the generic cheaper brands will work just as well if not better!!

      Comments about Canon EW-60C Lens Hood:

      I have had my Canon EOS Rebel T3 for just over a year. I was reading in one of my support manuals the advantage of having a hood for the lens. I understand that the hood will cut down on glare outside when I am using my Canon EFS II 18-55mm lens. I like that that the hood snaps on so securely (this is why I bought a Canon hood) and that for storage, you can just turn the hood around on the lens. I look forward to using it. It is made of hard, durable plastic. I like purchasing from B&H. Everything I have ordered has been in pristine condition and well packaged for delivery.

        Comments about Canon EW-60C Lens Hood:

        I am very pleased with the results of the photos taken with the lens hood and if for nothing else for the protection it gives the camera lens and filter. The lens hood goes on easily and stays secure. I have no concerns about it not staying on the end of the lens and losing it accidently.
        My only issue is with the cost of the product. It seems a bit on the pricey side to me, but it is a good product.

              Comments about Canon EW-60C Lens Hood:

              The EW-60C is the perfect companion for the Canon 18-55mm lens. It is sturdy and practical: the cap of the lens can be put on or taken out easily when the hood is on the lens and the hood can be inverted for travelling, if needed. Canon does not include a hood with its "mainstream" lenses... In my opinion, it is worth it to pay some extra money to buy a hood as it helps to protect the lens. It's much cheaper to replace a hood than a lens if the camera is dropped or knocked! And of course, the hood does a good job blocking the glare from the sun. I would defininetely recommand this product.

                  I decided to purchase the Canon lens hood over the third party manufacturers because I wanted to make sure that it would fit properly and snug. And sure enough, it does. It was definitely worth the purchase.

                      I use this on a Canon 3i Rebel on a 18-55mm lens.

                      It works fine to block a little direct sun and acts good as an extra line of defense for the lens.

                      PROS
                      - OEM (Canon) part
                      - Fits snug

                      CONS
                      - A little tricky to screw onto the lens
                      - Makes getting the lens cap off a bit more difficult

                                Comments about Canon EW-60C Lens Hood:

                                After attending a class on how to take better photos with my Canon Rebel, I went straight home and purchased the lens hood. Not only does it help filter unwanted light from affecting your pics, it also adds another level of protection for those expensive lenses. I noticed an immediate improvement in my picture quality without adding bulk to the camera. Also very easy to attach to the lens - just snap it on!

                                  The hood blocks the sun in most cases, but more importantly, it has saved my lens several times from being scratched or bumped when I have the camera hanging at my side and I brush up against something. Worth every penny.

                                      Great little hood fits well on my kit lens. It may be better if the hood is a bit larger.
